Pink Lady and Fig Bircher Muesli
The season for fresh figs is between summer and autumn.
Figs are rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron and are a good source of fibre, which promotes healthy digestion.
When choosing figs, select those that are plump and tender, have a rich, deep colour and are free from bruising. Keep your figs in the fridge and consume within 1-2 days of purchasing.
